Just out of curiousity, is there an online pattern for this shrug? And if one is used to making things like let's say... cell phone cozies, iPod cozies, and scarves, would it be too hard of a project to take up?

This was my first project after scarves, an ipod cozy, and the SnB kitty hat. Had I paid more attention to seaming techniques it would have probably ended up better the first time around, but I sidestepped that when making it a second time (for me) by just doing it in the round.

You'll be fine.

My website is coming together nicely! Please send me feedback, as I don't know how well it works on systems other than mine.

Also, I have a blog at  http://neglectedblog.blogspot.com/

Woodlandsprite & Juniperl -- or anyone else who may have done this pattern in the round;

I'm working on my 2nd version of this shrug -- the first time I knit it flat and seamed it, but wanted to give it a try in the round to save having to do those ugly seams (I suck terribly at sewing seams). I have gotten all the way up the first sleeve in the round -- on dpns -- and I'm having some trouble wrapping my feeble brain around how I now convert over to flat knitting for the back part. Is it just as simple as knitting the stitches onto a straight needle or a circular and working it flat and then transferring the stitches again onto the dpns when I reach the armhole on the other side? For some reason, I've reached a mental block and was hoping maybe someone could help unblock me!

Any advice you might have would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Love it.  Really cute colour too.

I am going to wind up doing a dozen of these things, in hopes of someday getting it just right!

This latest one I did in stockinette instead of ribbing, and knit it in the round on DPNs (thank god, no seaming at the end!!). The arms are still a little too long (I keep making the mistake of washing it and the weight of the wool causes the arms to stretch out -- next time, no washing!), and I did it in a soft, washable wool.

But the fun thing about this one is that I unraveled a long single strand of the 3-ply wool, threaded some clear beads onto it, and crocheted the beads onto the flared cuffs:

Adds something fun to an otherwise kinda' boring black shrug...
